#StampingSaturday: Metro Pollen-tin

Most of the time when I go to do my nails, I know exactly what I want to do. Sometimes it doesn't always turn out the way it looks in my head, but I have a clear direction. When I set out to do my nails for this #StampingSaturday I had no idea what I wanted to do. I decided I was going to pull a polish out of my stash at random and see if it inspired me. For this little experiment, I managed to grab China Glaze Metro Pollen-tin. Metro Pollen-tin is a marigold yellow that dries to a satin finish. The formula is rather finicky, and it took me four coats to get even coverage that wasn't patchy.

I let the color and the name inspire the look I chose to do. On my thumb and pinky I added one coat of Maybelline Color Show Clearly Spotted, a black and white multi-sized hex glitter topper. On my pointer and ring finger I stamped the honeycomb pattern from Winstonia's plate W-113. On my middle finger I stamped on a bee from Bundle Monster's BM-301 plate. For a little extra oomph, I filled in a few honeycombs with Floss Gloss' Stun! 

I went from having no idea what I wanted to do, to loving this bee mani. What do you think? I love the way everything came together. 

Don't forget to link up your stamped mani below and check out everyone else too! 

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

  1. Love this! Being inspired by my own collection for nail art is one of my favorite things.

    1. Thank you! It's the first time I've gone this route, but I think I'm going to try it more often.

  2. This is super cute and genius!! I am so torn about this polish. I love the colour but I keep hearing the formula is meh. Seeing this doesn't help, makes me want it more. :)

    1. The formula wasn't horrible, you just have to take your time between coats. I don't think you'll be upset if you get it. :-)
